NEW RELEASE: Ember Music Chain Album

Ember Music Chain Album

We are very happy to announce the release of the Ember Music Chain Album. The album is available now via Bandcamp !

This album started with an idea. Give an artist some random samples to use in an original track. Samples are then taken from the first track and given to the second artist to use. Samples from the second track are given to the third artist… on and on down the chain. The artists were not told whose samples they received nor to whom their samples would go. The artists were also sent an image as inspiration.

The results are quite astounding.

Credits:
Tracks composed, performed and mixed by the respective artists.
Mastered by Bill Bendrot.
Album art/design by Kurt Lorenz.
Chain album logo concept by Scott Brown.
Album concept by Daniel J. Davis.

Release date: 14 April 2014

Ember Music Chain Album Volume 1 is coming soon

We are very happy to announce our next compilation project Ember Music Chain Album Volume 1 is coming soon. The project started with an idea generated by Ember Music artist Daniel J. Davis… the concept was simple, give the first artist in the chain some samples and have them create a track using them… upon completion of their track they would pass samples from it on to the next artist in the chain. Included with the samples was an inspirational image (curated/created by Ember Music co-founder Kurt Lorenz) that would also serve as the artwork for each track and the album.

The first section of the chain will run like this:

01. Nordmach
02. Beaufays
03. Kikai
04. Solaris Affair
05. Murat Esmer
06. Daniel J. Davis
07. Known Rebel
08. Fake Empire
09. Graham Brinkert
10. Akisma

The project has taken a little longer to complete than anticipated and the decision was made to break it into smaller volumes in order to get the release out in 2013. We will start working on Volume 2 in the coming months and hope to release that in mid to late 2014.

As a special preview we have allowed Nordmach to share his track “Angels to Anguish” on his Soundcloud page.

Ember Music artist Kurt Lorenz included in “How to Catch STILLE?” compilation

HTCS

“Her Meaning is Muted” by Kurt Lorenz has been included as a bonus track to the “How to Catch STILLE?” compilation.

No other art can endorse the importance of good hearing better than music. It is universal and transcends geographical, social and linguistic boundaries.

How to catch STILLE? is cought from the view of various musicians. What started as a remix album of AN MOKU’s first album STILLE became a higher meaning. The literal translation of the german word “Stille” is silentness/quietness. Each several track deals with the meaning of this. Hearing loss is a very significant matter. More than ever in hectical nowadays! One in every six people worldwide is affected by hearing loss. As the population ages – and noise pollution in the world increases – more and more people will be losing their hearing. The consequences of untreated hearing loss can extend as far as complete social isolation.

Name your price to buy this album and all of the money will be donated to the following non-profit organizations: World Wide Hearing and Sonos Schweiz.

According to the World Health Organization, 642 million people in the world suffer from hearing loss. Of these, 278 million suffer from hearing loss so disabling that actions most people take for granted, like having a conversation, are impossible for them without a hearing aid. The majority live in developing countries and almost none have access to hearing aids or services. The cost of hearing care is simply unaffordable and there are too few audiologists working in poor countries to provide treatment for everyone.

50% of your donation will be used to provide hearing aids to people, mainly children with hearing loss in developing countries.

50% of your money will be used to fund innovative research on the impact of treating hearing loss.

The Swiss organization Sonos Schweiz is going to use this project album to report back to me how the music has an effect on the kids and teenagers with hear loss. More info to come soon.

The period of this project is one year. After six months I will report at this Bandcamp page and my own webpage in detail about the donation and the same after one year.

Last but not least, speaking in words of the polish sound artist and founder of Etalabel, Grzegorz Bojanek: «Ludzie bez najmniejszego problemu płacą $5 za kubek kawy, jednakże miliony ludzi nie chcą zapłacić nawet $1 za piosenkę, której nagranie kosztuje często setki dolarów, do nagrania której artyści musieli ćwiczyć często wiele godzin i którą można słuchać w kółko, bez końca i pozostaje z nami już na zawsze… SZANUJCIE ARTYSTÓW – KUPUJCIE MUZYKĘ.»

To this effect – Please support this project, even if it is just $1. You do not have to be a member of Bandcamp to support. Together we can achieve something!

On behalf of all artists – Thank you for your support!
